This can indicate the three major aspects of human nature – body, personal experience, and universal consciousness. It is similar to the number three – see Three. The triangle can also refer to the ‘eternal triangle’ of love relationships, or the mother, father child triangle.

Triangles are the strongest shape! Any weight placed on them is evenly distributed between all three sides. A triangle in any fashion can always represent strength. Place a triangle symbol on your altar or wear one as a reminder of how strong you are.

The triangle with point upwards: Depicts the physical aspects of human nature moving toward the personal or conscious or cosmic consciousness.

Triangle with point downwards: The cosmic forces moving toward physical expression.

Triangles linked in Star of David: Complete balance in human nature. The Life process/cosmic and the physical level in harmony and balance.

Sometimes: The points of the triangle are used to represent three stages of human development of awareness. The first is undifferentiated or preconscious stage. The second is the sense of individuality, feeling ‘otherness’ in regard to the world. Three is the relationship of the self to the ‘other’ in people and the world.
